We missed it last week, so this week we've got 2 #weeklyhalloffamer's to celebrate, and Aaron Jessee - Master MsE you are our #1! Thanks for all of your love and shout-outs! And for making our gear look great!

#Volleyball was originally created by William Morgan, to be a competitive recreational sport that was less violent and not as intense as the rapidly developing sport of #basketball. Today volleyball athletes know just how intense it can be. Staying at peek condition is not only important for your health, but keeps you at the top of your game! Thanks for sharing your performance and fitness knowledge!

This week we are honored to extend our #weeklyhalloffamer designation to an athlete who's name has been formally enshrined into our hall of fame. The one and only @vladimir_grbic, was inducted into the hall of fame in 2011. The Yugoslavia Olympic Committee declared Vladimir as its best Sportsman of the Year in 1996 and 2000—the years he lead the national team to win bronze🥉 and gold 🥇respectively.

Thank you Vladimir, for recognizing the hall of fame and sharing your love of both the sport 🏐 and your greatest supporters—your family!

A strong support system is essential to anyone who is dedicated to following their dreams, and we love and respect how much you appreciate yours! 👍❤️
